How often do you recommend books to others, and who do you recommend them to? Do you only recommend books to your “reading friends” or to anyone you think might find the book interesting? What does it take for a book to make it to your ‘recommendation’ list?
Oh I'm always recommending books to everyone! Family, friends, complete strangers... lol. Friday when I was in Borders two strangers started recommending Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series to each other (which I love) and somehow True Blood came up. Neither lady knew that it was based on Charlaine Harris' books so I pointed them in that direction and each one bought the first three!
To make it on my "recommendation list" the book (or series) has to be something I throughouly enjoyed. I'm always honest even in my blog reviews though I do try to find something good to say about a book even if I didn't enjoy it that much. If I do recommend a book that I only sortof like, it would have to be something that I know that that person would love.
